How Can I Set Mail To Mark Messages As Not Junk Before Moving Them To Inbox?

Some messages and newsletters from known senders are marked as Junk Mail and there is no way to create a rule in Mail to change that before sending it to my inbox. I don’t want to add all of these senders to my contacts. What can I do?

    What, exactly, is marking them as Junk in the first place? Is it your email provider? Your Mail app? Is your app, just one on your Mac or somewhere else too? Is it a rule you set up, or are you using the Junk Mail filter in the Mail app?

    I haven’t used the Junk Mail filter in the Mail app in years. It is an old feature that was really only useful back before modern email systems (Gmail, iCloud). Modern systems do the filtering on the server and are much more accurate that doing it just on your local app. So maybe turn that off if that is what is causing the issue?

    Are you still using your ISP’s email service? If so, I recommend getting away from that ASAP. See https://macmost.com/five-reasons-not-to-use-your-isps-email-service.html

    Hi Dennis, what you need to do is go to iCloud.com. Select mail and then the junk folder. Here you can highlight the offending message and then hit “not junk”.
